to raise -lg the debt ceiling when he was a senator said it was irresponsible to do so. he said it was because of a failure of leadership. we have a president who is addicted to spending and he needs to just look in the mirror because he is the source of the problem. it's his healthcare law, it's the failed stimulus package, these are things that the president has forced through, the democrats have gone w and it is onwith, and it's one of the reasons we are so deeply in debt. if you're a family and bills are coming in, you take a look at the bills and say, how can we make sure that we pay these bills, but more importantly you want to say how can we make sure we don't have bigger bills to pay in the future. bill: what idea would you support? are you on john boehner's side who says we'll give you a dollar in debt if you give us a dollar in spending cuts, or pat toomey the republican senator from pennsylvania says you can make priority payments to make sure the military is covered and items like that, and then make less priority payments further off in the future. would you go for
